Hello Experts,

Exchange 2010 and Server 2008 R2 environment.  I've spent as much time as I can researching this and it's time to use a lifeline.  This should be fairly easy I would think.  I'm trying to modify the mailbox details seen in the GAL for Exchange 2010 OWA, ie Phone Number, Office, Address, etc.  A screenshot of what I'm referring to can be found here:

I know most of these attributes are linked back to AD under the General tab of an object's properties, but how would I add a custom one?  Let's say for argument's sake I wanted to include 'Favorite Color'.  Should I be looking at at Extension / Custom Attributes?

Thanks in advance.

I'm aware of the filtering capabilities of custom attributes, but how would you make an entry visible in the GAL?

Unfortunately there is not ready out of the box solution for this but the following link might help.
